Mike Pence: Law School Cartoonist

Did you know that 2016 Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence drew cartoons while in law school in Indiana? Esquire has them here. 

"They're strange," explain the Esquire writer Annie Garau. It's her opinion, but I found these 1980s era Robert H. McKinney School of Law newspaper cartoons to be "of their ilk." I mean, they are not funny/understandable unless you were in law school with Mike Pence at the time, and a lot of the jokes are kinda either mean or not funny or old or obtuse. This is beginner-amateur-cartoonist scattershot work. If Mike had stuck with cartooning, I feel his draftsmanship and writing would naturally improve.
